Governed by God or Tyrants?

My wife found this quote on The Federalist Papers – Facebook. This is a truism that President Barack Hussein Obama probably will never acquiesce toward.

Governed by God or Tyrants?

Not governed by God ruled by Tyrants

Love is indeed Heaven upon Earth; since Heaven above would not be Heaven without it: For where there is not Love; there is Fear: But perfect Love casts out Fear.

And yet we naturally fear most to offend what we most Love. What we Love, we'll Hear; what we Love, we'll Trust; and what we Love, we'll serve, ay, and suffer for too.

If you love me (says our Blessed Redeemer) keep my Commandments. Why? Why then he'll Love us; then we shall be his Friends; then he'll send us the Comforter; then whatsoever we ask, we shall receive; and then where he is we shall be also, and that forever.

Behold the Fruits of Love; the Power, Virtue, Benefit and Beauty of Love! Love is above all; and when it prevails in us all, we shall all be Lovely, and in Love with God and one with another.
